In eastern Oregon is a planted forest grove of poplar-hybrid trees are being cut down to make room for farmland. Cows, I believe. Economics is tearing down the 25,000 acre grove. When I arrived there for the very first time it was sunrise in early March, 2015. Boardman was about half way on what would turn out to be an 800 mile road trip. I hardly sleep during these things and we had barely made it before sunrise so when I opened the door to fresh, 15° air I welcomed it with a full chest and buzzing senses. Then I took off at a run scanning for trees that caught my eye on a subconscious level- there was no time for deliberating. When I found a semi-symmetrical panorama of trees that was open to the horizon but crowed on the flanks I knew I found what I was looking for. I had chosen this particular grove for this reason. Still, when the light hit the east faces of the trees I was blown away by the dimension it produced. The trees were moving as if their shadows were tickling them as they slid off to stretch across the floor. That is when I captured Dance.
